KBSI Perspective
I have been watching a number of local people switch to e-cigarettes lately. I am not a doctor and certainly am not sure of the long term health effects but I appreciate not having to be around second hand smoke. There has been talk that maybe they are OK for airlines but that will probably not ever happen. These nicotine vapor inhalers have become very popular with kids and young adults. Now Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel is in the news supporting an ordinance that expands the city’s regulation of tobacco products to include e-cigarettes. This means they can’t be used in offices, indoor public areas and within ten feet of building entrances. Look, I am not trying to promote e-cigarettes but Emanuel is taking this too far. Governor Pat Quinn signed legislation that beginning in January these devices can’t be sold to minors. I agree and so do 20 other states. It’s true that the Center for Disease Control says 1.8 people under eighteen tried e-cigarettes in 2012. How they came up with that statistic is questionable, in my perspective. I agree with the no sale approach to minors but e-cigarettes should not be under the same rules as tobacco. Mayor Emanuel and other lawmakers need to take a second look and let e-cigarette vaporers alone on this one. What do you think?E-Cigarettes
